Smooth playabililty and a balanced body, the TMB30 short scale Talman bass offers a wide dynamic range of tone with volume. In addition, the TMB30 has plenty of low end that sustains. Whether you are a beginner or looking for a second bass, the TMB30 will deliver!
Reflecting a classic Ibanez body style, the Talman Bass Series sports a cool retro look with a sound that will inspire players of all ages. While Talman basses normally have the more common 34” long-scale neck, the TMB30 offers a short-scale 30” neck. The shorter neck is often preferred by players of smaller stature who find a long-scale instrument to be unwieldy. It is also a favorite of guitarists who double on bass— the shorter scale having a feel closer to that of an electric guitar.
The TMB30 features include a mahogany body for a warm, punchy tone, a maple neck with rosewood fretboard, a standard bridge, and a black pickguard to complete the classic vibe. Electronics consist of an Ibanez Dynamix P neck pickup and a Dynamix J bridge pickup for that rich, vintage sound.
